2012 Le Chanceux Cabernet Sauvignon
6 Barrels Produced
This wine has a deep garnet color and beautiful perfume of dried roses, lavender and kirsch over core of blueberry preserves and cassis with touches of pencil shavings and truffles. The medium to full-bodied palate is intense and spicy in the mouth with velvety tannins and incredible length.
- Barrel fermented in 100% new French oak barrels and barrel aged in 50% new French oak, the integration of oak is perfection.
- Harvested in late September at the peak of phenolic ripeness without being over ripe, the wine was built to be balanced.
